Monorail Mania

There's a wonderful show on the Disneyland monorail on the Official Disneyland Resort Podcast. The show starts out with an interview of Bob Gurr who designed the first Dland monorail the Mark I. He's got a great Walt story, and a funny President Nixon monorail story!

Then there's a brief interview with Imagineer Scott Drake, who designed the new Mark VII monorail. He shares insight about the concepts behind the new design.

It's very cool to hear the designers of the the Mark I and the Mark VII in the same show!

Another podcast that I really like listening to is Character Breakfast. They have a segment on the show called "Monorail Station", which is a weekly review of an attraction by a Canadian husband and wife named Pluto and Imagine (aliases, obviously). They are cute and funny and a little wacky. I'd love to meet them! The show is hosted by Sorcerer (an alias), and also includes another panelist, Jeff (not an alias?), who gives the news updates.

Check them out today!
